Updated on November 5, 2009

Philippines Region VII Central Visayas

The Central Visayas includes the island provinces of Bohol, Cebu, Negros Oriental and Siquijor. Locate these provinces on the map.

Geographical Features

The Central Visayas has a total land area of 14,951 square kilometers. Generally, the land features of the islands are hilly and mountainous. Central Visayas has rugged interiors because of high mountains. The mountains of Negros are in the West. The mountains of Samar and Leyte are in the Northeast. Central Visayas has also many volcanoes. Among them are Mt. Kanlaon and Mt. Balinsasayao.


The seasons affecting the provinces are not very pronounced. The provinces experience no maximum wet nor dry seasons. Cebu receives little rainfall due to the high mountains that block the rain.

Products and Industries

People of Central Visayas are engaged in different economic activities such as farming, manufacturing, mining, animal-raisin and home industries. Corn is the chief crop of Cebu in spite of its poor soil. Its copper mine in Toledo is the biggest in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia. Negros Oriental is the biggest kapok-producing province. In Bohol, many people are engaged in home manufacturing industries such as making sinamay hats and mats due to lack of land to cultivate. The people produce rice in arable lands. Siquijor exports^ copra, tobacco and maguey.

The urban centers in the region are the cities of Cebu, Mandaue, Toledo, Danao, Lapu-Lapu, Dumaguete, Naga, Carcar, Bogo, Bais and Tagbilaran. Cebu City is the commercial, industrial and educational center not only for the region but for the Southern Philippines. It has an international airport which serves as an alternate to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
